Earlier today we were informed that Matsumoto has moved in to the semi finals of the Japanese High School championships, which will take place tomorrow.
The youngster, who competes as a Light Flyweight, over-came Tatsuya Sakamoto in the quarter final of the competition with a clear 3-0 win and is now being tipped as one of the favourites.
Whilst Matsumoto is incredibly young he has already been featured in a couple of notable TV segments and has trained alongside a number of major names at the Ohashi gym, including Naoya Inoue. His career has also been guided by his father, Koji Matsumoto, himself a former world title challenger. It's thought that the level of training and the guidance of his father will help him become a star of the future and we've been continually advised to keep a close eye on the teenager.
